TANNERSVILLE CRANBERRY BOG FIELD TRIP

The Tannersville Cranberry Bog, owned and managed by The Nature Conservancy, partnered with programming by Kettle Creek EEC, is recognized as the southernmost low altitude boreal bog along the eastern seaboard, and is designated as a National Natural Landmark. Tannersville Cranberry Bog was once a 715-acre kettle lake formed by glacial depressions, eventually becoming filled with layers of sphagnum moss to 60 feet deep, creating an acidic fen supporting a unique habitat.

The Tannersville Cranberry Bog is in Monroe County, PA, near the Delaware Water Gap. Many species of plants and animals normally found in northern boreal bogs (like a little fragment of Canada in PA!) occur here, including several endangered species. This trip explores the unique plant community and its inhabitants including birds, herps, insects, etc.
This is a free trip, but your donation is encouraged to help support maintenance of the trails and programming. (Checks acceptable).

Wear sturdy shoes for a short, uneven hike along a woodland trail to a boardwalk path leading through the wetland habitat.

RSVP is required for this trip. Please contact Cindy Ahern at cynthia.ahern@temple.edu or call or text 215-840-4010 to reserve your spot and for additional details, including meeting location and directions.
